UAB President Ray Watts and the University of Alabama System Board of Trustees have agreed upon a contract extension for Head Men’s Basketball Coach Robert Ehsan.
Ehsan, who is 37-29 in his first two seasons as head coach, guided the Blazers to their third 20-win season in the last four years and the sixth in the past 10. He has signed one of the top recruiting class in Conference USA for the 2018-19 season.
“I am beyond appreciative for the belief that has been instilled in me and my staff,” Ehsan said. “Competing for championships is the standard for UAB basketball and I am excited to lead this storied program as we continue to build upon its outstanding tradition.”
Director of Athletics Mark Ingram, and Head Women’s Basketball Coach Randy Norton also received extensions.
